Following the announcement of their best of album Black Gold and UK and European tour earlier this month, Editors have today unveiled the dramatic new video for title track ‘Black Gold‘. Watch it here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1UVIEPI944&feature=youtu.be . This comes in the wake of their last video for ‘Frankenstein‘ being nominated for Music Video of The Year at this year’s Shots Awards.

Directed by long time collaborator Rahi Rezvani, the video sees frontman Tom Smith display instinctive acting ability alongside US actress Nicole Stark. Driving a red Ford Mustang through the desert, the couple stop at a desolate motel and gas station, as their volatile relationship falls apart at the seams. The destruction of their relationship is mirrored by the sparse desert imagery in which Tom remonstrates alone with nature, and the desolate, dusty motel, where his lover waits alone.

The band will be also embarking on a 27 date European and UK Greatest Hits tour in early 2020, which will see them play shows in BirminghamManchesterDublin and Glasgow, with a landmark performance at London‘s SSE Arena Wembley set for Friday 28th February.
